    I don't think that's cool at all, that is just having no regard for the instrument.

    I think maybe he suffers from LAMS.

    That is not a Pbass. It is a musicman.

    Sorry. I am a dumbass. I was reading a post regarding pbasses and pulled the trigger. Anyhoo, you are correct. Looks like it took a giant whoop ass!

    Meh. Famous guy with plenty of money bangs up his own one-of-zillions factory-made bass and keeps right on playing it.

    Nothing notable about the bass. Nothing notable about the story.

    Probably got something huge dropped on it on tour. Not much to do but play it or throw it away. Looks like he didn’t throw it away.

    Would be cool if his tech hung the chrome control plate out on some black brackets where it would be were the body intact.

    He either really loves that bass, or really hates it.

    Oh I disagree, that bass clearly tells one helluva story.

    What a waste. That doesn't look cool. More like an idiot. It just doesn't fit the look or the persona of the band at all.

    Maybe his Music Man was the victim of the infamous Ash borer beetle:D?There was a video on Facebook of a Musicman that had been so chambered by a beetle that it was leaking wood dust and falling apart!
